Shortly after noon, the driver left the northbound side of Highway 101 near Mount Lowe Road, smashed through a fence, ploughed through about 70 feet of heavy brush which trapped the driver inside the vehicle.

The driver was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

It is unclear what caused the crash. Authorities have yet to release the driver’s identity.
